This is a part of our 8th Ontology Summit, a joint initiative by
ONTOLOG, NIST, NCOR, NCBO, IAOA & NCO_NITRD with the support of our
co-sponsors. The theme adopted for this Ontology Summit is: "Ontology
Evaluation Across the Ontology Lifecycle."

Track-D focuses on "Software Environments for Evaluating Ontologies."
In this 5th panel session of the Summit, and the first Track-D
session, we will start by laying out a plan to survey and study the
landscape of software environments, systems and tools that feature
"ontology evaluation." This will be followed by briefings from our
panelists who will share with us their experience and insights on how
a few (exemplary) software environments/systems/tools support ontology
evaluation, and help assure quality in the development of ontology or
ontology-driven application. Our last panelist will represent a user
community developing a software environment, and has a "real need" to
evaluate whether and which ontologies would best meet their needs. A
Q&A and open discussion among all panelists and participants will
follow after the briefings.


These sessions, like all Ontolog virtual events, are open and free of
charge. Anyone who is interested, or (better still) who may have
something to contribute, is welcome. Please refer to event details on
the session pages, to which the hyperlink is given above, where you

Ontology Summit community member) so that we can prepare enough
resources to support everyone. [Please state clearly the date of the
